Year 5 and 6

Exciting things the children will be learning in the spring term:

Our topic this term will be ‘History of the Fens’.

We will be studying the history and geography of our local area and the changes to the fens over time. A main focus of our study will be Wicken Fen and the animals and plants that are found here and how and why the National Trust are working on preserving the fenland environment.

 In science, we will be describing the differences in the life-cycles of a mammal, an amphibian, an insect and a bird and we will be looking at the life processes of reproduction in some plants and animals.


In English, we will be covering a range of writing genres, both fiction and non-fiction, relating to these areas of learning.
